Main Digest

The Disabled Airport Guide is aimed at helping people with disability while traveling through airports.


The guide covers a wide range of accessibility issues and concerns within airports which currently affect disabled travelers and also users with restricted mobility.

Unfamiliar environments, such as busy airports, can be a daunting experience for anyone who is restricted by a disability. This can make simple tasks, such as stowing luggage and boarding the aircraft extremely problematic.

The guide has been produced by airport parking company Parkat ( and includes common worries and frequently asked questions:

What happens at security and customs

General airport assistance

Advice before you travel

Return journey help

Traveling with autism

Traveling with medication

Traveling with kidney disease

Breathing related mobility restrictions

Visual impairments

Deaf or hearing impaired

Assistance at the car park

Wheelchair advice

Assistance pets

Tips and advice

Matthew Lobas comments:

"We have created this guide to help relieve some of the stress and worry for disabled people using airports. We regularly get emails about wheelchair access and other related questions therefore it made sense to collate all this information and to produce an easily accessible document which contains everything. The aim is to help everyone regardless of their needs to travel comfortably."

The free guide is available from the Parkat website in PDF and text format.
